BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) _ A southwestern Illinois man is jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused of sexually attacking a woman after using a stun gun to subdue her.
Prosecutors in St. Clair County have charged 48-year-old Richard Lee of Lebanon with aggravated criminal sexual assault with a weapon.

Authorities arrested Lee on Friday. Shiloh police contend he went to the woman’s home and used a stun gun to subdue her, then tied her up and attacked her before untying her and fleeing.

Online court records don’t show whether Lee has an attorney. No one returned a message seeking comment left at his home on Monday.
